ByAmazon Customeron February 9, 2017Format: PaperbackWhat an insightful variation of this authors feelings of being the caregiver to his mother as she ended her journey here on earth. I was my fathers caregiver the majority of the time prior to his death. This book truly helped me realize that I was not alone when it comes to the feeling of guilt associated with the caregiving for a parent during the tail end of their life.ByAlyssa Youngermanon February 9, 2017Format: PaperbackAs I begin this journey with my ailing grandmother, I'm grateful I was more prepared to deal with the coming weeks by reading this book. Care giving is not an easy job and it's refreshing knowing that others share the same feelings and emotions I'm currently experiencing. I appreciate Mr. Roche's honesty and transparency when discussing such a difficult subject. Thank you again, John Roche, for sharing such your "Journey."ByAmazon Customeron February 3, 2017Format: Paperback

A must read for all adults. Relevant for potential caregivers as well as those who will be cared for. Should be mandatory for all those in the medical profession. We all have limits to what we can deal with without replenishment of our spirit particularly when we work with patients and then go home to care for our loved ones. Opens up conversations for end of life care and potential solutions to help with the journey in saying goodbye. Thank you, Mr Roche for your honest reflection of your experience. Carol Lopez
